Francisco Espinoza

January 16, 1948 — January 18, 2024

Francisco Espinoza, born on January 16, 1948 in the vibrant city of Uruapan, Michoacan, Mexico, left an indelible mark on the world during his remarkable journey. During his life, he brought love and light to our lives and to the lives of everyone he touched. He was always driven by an unwavering devotion to his family and by a determination to provide his wife and daughters with the best life he had to offer. He loved helping others and was always there for his friends and family. 

Francisco was not just a provider; he was a beacon of positivity and resilience. His infectious smile and unwavering courage were constants throughout his life. He had an innate ability to see the best in everyone, fostering a legacy of kindness and integrity.

Our "Frankie" found solace in nature, and loved to hike, sing, dance, read and laugh. He bestowed upon us invaluable lessons on the power of a kind word, being a great listener, and offering genuine compliments to everyone around him. 

Survived by his devoted wife of 52 years, Enma, Francisco leaves behind a legacy of love and illumination. His impact resonates through the lives of his daughters Jasmine, Julissa, and Marisol; his grandchildren Arianna and Lucas; and his son-in-law Israel.

A private memorial service in honor of Francisco will be held at Forest Lawn Covina Hills on Saturday, February 24th, at 9:30 AM, followed by a reception at 11:00 AM.

Family and friends are encouraged to wear vibrant colors to reflect our dad's warm, bright and loving energy.

Address: Forest Lawn Covina Hills, 21300 Via Verde St, Covina, CA 91724

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to be made directly to the Pasadena Senior Center and/or the USC Caregivers Resource Center. These organizations played a pivotal role in Francisco's journey, supporting him and his family.
